Good to get it to the West Coast. Please consider it for Dana Point in July. Plans for Lancia West Coast get together in Arizona?

Now that the car is done, I am sure we can hope for an excellent article and pictures in the soon to-be-in-my-mailbox Lanciana

BTW, Mike, congratulations on the Desert Classic.

Amelia Island

Thanks to all for your kind words. I had a great time at Amelia, working all week including Sunday morning, when I sang the National Anthem to open the show! The Flaminia looked lovely on the field, although it turned out not to actually be finished... It's gone back to Connecticut for completion/rectification. I'm not sure when I'll get it to California.
It was nicely received, and I understand came in third in class in scoring. Unfortunately, only two awards are given... So it was a lovely 'first loser'!
My friend Daniele Turrisi brought the wonderful Fulvia HF Ghia Prototipo from Italy, which was also in my class. It was great to see the car again!

Don't you hate that . . .

It looks terrific nonetheless, undoubtedly one of the most elegant cars on the field. Thanks for the photos.

Now offered at Gooding Scottsdale, lot 129.

The estimate seems highly understated to me, given Flaminia restoration costs and the soaring price of Aurelias. This car is strikingly handsome, although that odd pipe wrench in the tool kit is a bit alarming. I anticipate closer to six figures.

Good luck with the sale !

Hammer price $87,500, all-in $96,250 versus a pre-sale of $65 - 80,000. A beautiful car, still a bargain for the buyer, but congratulations Donald !

I know it's in really great condition but isn't that a very very high price for a PF coupe?

World record, if I'm not very much mistaken. The best always comes with a price.

I'm happy for you Donald and i was quiet until today, but this isn't a proper restore: Carini had "a tiny bit" of fantasy...

I am pleased you are happy for me- but could you please elaborate on the "fantasy"? Just curious... :-)

The fantasy is about the colours: Grigio Flemington and piano black (roof+trunk) on a PF coupè ? Never heard about this combination....

That 'fantasy' is mine, not Carini's. The colors were available at the time so a client might have chosen them if they so desired. They suit the shape well, and complimented the (original) color of the interior so I used them!
I much prefer the way the car looked in this scheme, more formal and elegant!

I'm not discussing what you prefer, you could paint it in yellow fly with the american flag on the roof if you liked, but this doesn't mean to respect the originality, no offence.
The colours were available in the period 1965-70 and PF never made a two-tone coupè, so a client couldn't choose them. Lancia proposed the two-tone scheme for the sedan only (painted in the factory). If you want to tell me that somebody resprayed the car after the purchase because he liked it and you liked it too, i should agree with you, but the original colour of this coupè was the Argento Auteuil. You know it and we know it.
